Wraps - my favorite lunch

>> Monday, November 17, 2008

I am crazy about homemade wrap sandwiches. I have a wrap almost every day for lunch. They're so easy, and if you choose the right ingredients, very healthy! So, I thought I'd do a quick post today and share one of my favorites.

Start with a tortilla - I like to use a whole wheat or multi-grain tortilla. Unlike bread, I have yet to see a tortilla with HFCS in it, so it's a pretty easy to acquire HFCS-free ingredient. Next, add a smear of hummus to your tortilla. Then top with your favorite ingredients - today I added sliced onion, bottled roasted red bell pepper, fresh basil, and feta cheese.

I came across this combo in Cooking Light. They also added sliced lemon chicken, but I never have lemon chicken on hand and like it just as well meatless. Roll up and enjoy! So quick and easy!

Other standbys for me are a smear of cream cheese topped with a smear of basil pesto, onion, tomato, and sliced turkey. Or a smear of cream cheese topped with a smear of salsa, sliced avocados, and onion. The combinations are endless!

So, for a quick and healthy lunch, grab some fresh ingredients and a tortilla and go crazy! And if you come up with some particularly tasty combos, let me know about them!

I'm so glad you posted this. It was a happy day when I figured out I could stock the freezer with wraps for lunch. Your combos will inspire some new ones for me.

I do this too -- a holdover from the days when I worked nights and had wraps almost every day for lunch at home. I put fat-free sour cream on mine as a base, then some grilled chicken, cheddar or nacho cheese and green pepper and onions. I warm them on the paninni grill to melt the cheese. It's awesome. Sometimes I substitute salsa for the sour cream.
